Wayne I really am sorry for your loss, I havent seen you guys for over 30 years. But, I still remember the good times up home. Remember all the sledding on your hill, Sharon only had to look at a sled to break her collarbone. Were you in the MYF when she dressed as a carrot for a Halloween party, fell and couldn’t get up? Keep remembering David in the good times, that’s what I try to do with Sharon.

Victoria Warner says:
